Hi, I'm Hsin-Yu Chen (陳欣榆). I came from Taiwan, and spent the first 22 years of my life in a beautiful area 木柵 (which means "wooden fences"), Taipei. I got my PhD from the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, University of Chicago. I'm now a postdoctoral fellow at Black Hole Initiative, Harvard University.

Although I fell in love with Astronomy from star gazing, I'm working on an entirely different approach to observe the Universe, the gravitational waves. My thesis research focuses on Gravitational-Wave Astronomy, and I'm now a member of the LIGO collaboration. I also joined the Dark Energy Survey-Gravitational Wave working group to haunt for the electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave signals. You can find my CV on the side bar.
